She was appointed to create an unsecured loan department for the bank. In 1970, she was the Loan Officer and Collector of all types of loans at the bank.

She was a past long term active member of the Franklin Federated Church, a member of the Franklin Senior Citizens and the Association of Retired Persons.

Gladys did volunteer work at the Franklin Public Library, she was an avid crocheter; enjoyed crossword puzzles, scrabble and Sudoku, along with reading, baking and walking for miles every day.

Sally and David just stopping by to say even thought this Easter will be celebrated differently than in the past, it is what this day represents that is truly special, and that has not changed.  May you and your family have a very special, safe, blessed Easter Sunday.

I just came upon the post today, Barbara Todaro and I want to convey my condolences on the loss of your mother. It has been several months but I know she is still, and always will be, in your memories.

It is ironic that just today, the Aunt of my wife passed away at the age of 99.

They are lost but we will always hold them in our hearts.
